Young & old remember Pearl Harbor

At National World War II Memorial, veterans remember the day it all started

"There is not a person in this great country who has not been impacted, in some way, from the events that took place in World War II and in Pearl Harbor", Day said.

On Thursday, President Donald Trump signed a proclamation honoring National Pearl Harbor Day. The president also promised them his administration would build up the military.

"It's these folks, the Pearl Harbor veterans, the World War II veterans who have paved the way for our success on the battlefield and throughout the world", Mitch Day, the Senior Vice Commander of Post 4008, said.

Those whose eyes watched as Japanese planes swarmed Pearl Harbor 76 years ago Thursday grow scarcer with each passing year, but Lawson Close remembers.

"I don't think about it too much anymore because something like this brings it back to your memory", Stephenson said.

World War II veteran Tom Kaiser, 89, and Korean War veteran Stan Gavlick, 86, both of Delray Beach, planned the event at Veterans Memorial Park with the Boynton veterans group.

Valley Christian school students read the names of the 56 Wisconsin natives killed at Pearl Harbor, followed by the solemn tolling of a bell. They began the ceremony at noon, which was 7 Hawaii. During and after the official ceremony, they grouped together, chatted and spent more than a little time talking to well-wishers, curious young people and folks just wanting to shake the hand of a bona fide war hero.

As an example of this humanitarianism, Jindirch cited that if combatants against the USA military turn their backs to US soldiers and run away, our country's rules of engagement forbid soldiers from firing on them.

He said the attack was a "bad mistake of misjudging" America.

In thinking about the lessons of Pearl Harbor, Larry said he hopes 'we can build up the military again'.

"Then went out to the Pacific on a destroyer, stayed the rest of the war, picked up 12 battle stars", said Harless. We can't forget that. "By the end of the war, Pacific Fleet submarines had conducted 488 war patrols, and were responsible for more than half of all enemy ships that were sunk".
